Call him a perfect cast. Call him ‘damn lucky’ for being able to plant a big fat passionate kiss on Katy Perry’s lips. Just call him Shaun Ross. Many people are just being introduced to Mr. Ross as Katy Perry’s lover in her E.T. video, but Shaun is more than just a video love interest with a tight behind. You may not have heard his name before, but prepare to hear his name again. Before Shaun Ross was cast to play Katy Perry’s love interest (a ‘job’ any man could only dream of snagging up), Mr. Ross was strutting his stuff on runways and posing for magazine spreads. Ross has made quite the name for himself in the fashion industry with his unique look and background. From first look, Ross gives off a fierce glow that exudes confidence. But beneath the surface is a man who has been through hell to get to where he is. Not only was the albino-born African American bullied for looking different, he felt misfit amongst his own cultural community. But through it all, he strives for excellence, appreciates his differences and is not looking back! I got a chance to chat with Mr. Ross about the creation of the E.T. video and most importantly, what it was like to kiss Katy Perry.
